Hi, I work a lot with visual studio code for FASM these days, but the only syntax highlighting I found is for pure x86-NASM. Which is not too compatible with FASM, and the rendering is ugly and not very explicit:

So I was wondering if you don't know (or have created) a syntax for visual studio code adapted to FASM?
That would be a small relief for the eyes ^^.
Thank you!

Why not use Android Studio for FASM programming then?

I didn't know this IDE supported the FASM language. This is a solution, but not programming in Java, Kotlin, HTML, or any other language of this type, I think I should refrain from using a heavy IDE for a simple syntax highlighting change.
But, apart from coloring, would you recommend this IDE if I'm a C, C++, C#, VB, and FASM programmer (well, FASM, I'm more at an "experimental" stage)?

That’s not my point. Android Studio is based on a generic language-agnostic IDE. And it is awful in terms of UX. You’re trying to use Visual Studio as a generic language-agnostic IDE. And it is a slow over-bloated unstable piece of junk as well.

Why would anyone want to use a generic IDE instead of a custom one specifically made for particular language/toolset? For any given language a generic IDEs is worse than custom one, by definition.

You’re looking for FASM syntax highlighting to be done for you by someone. And it is already done in a piece of software marked with FASM label, it is called FASMW not even mentioning some IDEs with FASM support a one of their features. Don’t you just look for a bus stop in the Mariana Trench?

Okay, I get it.
Thanks for your help Smile
PS: Actually, I wasn't looking for an IDE for FASM, but a code editor that accepted FASM. And Visual Studio Code is not an IDE, but a text editor Wink
